Stayed there for two nights in an ocean view room on top floor. Arrived an hour before offical check-in time and was served by a French (?) lady and immediately allocated a room to us. She recognised my Sofitel Privlege card and organised welcome drinks, gift pack (tropical fruit), free newspaper and late check-out - what a service!
We had free valet parking and a potter to take our bags into our room. Room consisted of a king size bed, an analogue TV, small balcony - enough for a table and two chairs. Bathroom was clean and had a bath tub and a combined shower sauna/steam room! Never been to a hotel with a sauna/steam room before - what a surprise!
In the evening, we were also offered turn down and got given bottled water and chocolate.
Hotel is located next to the casino, reef terminal and a stone throw away from the CBD.
Package also included breakfast which was nice but not spectacular.
Overall, it was a very pleasent stay with excellent service.
